No imo. They're a funner team and I love watching it. But it's sort of like the Dead. This takes a lot of focus and dedication and that's not always there so they can be erratic. Witness their deficits in 3 games. BBall has weird chemistry stuff. Durant can always get a good shot, but I think they fall off the tracks when they allow themselves to believe that he'll always bail them out on a possession.Too much Jerry was not always the best Dead either. Now if you add a healthy Boogie into it, then I'd change my mind. :) I love the playoffs.

Way to bring it around to the good ol' GD. Agreed, I love the playoffs. Portland is a year or two and an all-star away from getting to the next level. We straight up lost game 1, but games 2-3-4 we held 17-18-17 point leads and managed to lose them. It was a fun run. 2000 was the last time we were in the Western Conference Finals.

Did you see they announced Dame will get a 4-year $191M super-max deal today to extend on top of the 2 years he still has on this contract. They extended Coach Stotts contract today as well. Two solid moves

I've recently read about how synergistic the 3 are in GS. What you all need is another roll partner for Dame, someone who can play like Draymond. The bottom line is that Curry would have lost in place of Dame.

Draymond fills that Dennis Rodmen role. Wild, crazy, in your face, pisses off the opposition, makes that perfect assist/rebound/steal when most needed.

Durant is like having Joe Bonamassa on stage with Jerry...very nice but it really isn't the GD and it gets old real fast when they consistently go to the "tried and true" instead of the "make it up on the fly". The Warriors are much more creative w/o Durant.

As the only pro ball player around here (well, OK, it was less than $50, but I was paid to play...once...ahem), and as a member of the historic 2 on 2 championship team (McGlone & Tell over Dire and HFlow), I can say that the Warriors (sorry, no one that has followed the Warriors since 1967 calls them the "dubs"...ugh) are too much of a good thing (w Durant they simply accentuate what they already do: shoot 3's...no plan B, as many would say).

Sorry, don't call me a "hater"...

One of the great names the press ever bestowed was on a Warrior
Joe Barely Cares,
( traded with a Sleepy for a Sampson, no less)

As a kid my friends and I had the jones and would drive all over LI to play in 3 on 3 games, winner keeps the court.
Praise Mrs. Gatewood and her Pinto for driving us around.

I played in Commack Arena on a night Rick Barry played for the Nets. You had to walk over the ice from the hockey rink to get to the court. CYO stuff. Barry won a title almost by himself with SF.

Paid huh? I thought the Archive was amateur only. You might have to return some of your posts.

Interesting to me to see if they can maintain the movement when he's back. It's almost like they subconsciously allow him to dominate cause it's easier to win that way. I just wish he wasn't such a sensitive twit lately.

I turned pro back in the day but nobody noticed or cared. Does that count?

Going back that long with a team is special. Who were your favorite players along the way? Isn't it remarkable in this day and age that a team is playing in the same facility where they played in '66. (When the Dead were playing pizza parlors and strip joints up and down the peninsula.)

A pet theory I've been espousing the last few years has it that as part of playing in the City next year they will revert back to 'San Francisco Warriors.'

Oh yeah, I love that notion (back to SFW, the "city" and such of the old days). Perfect.

Rick Barry, w/out doubt...folks that only saw him in 75 when they won forget his 40+ pts per game in the 67 finals, a record ave that no one can top even in this day and age, I daresay...? Think so anyhow.

When we won in 75 it was all so unexpected, didn't win 50 games, etc., etc. Were supposed to lose to Bullets, and then swept them! That yr it happened so fast that it really didn't resonate w us heads...snuck up on us, and then another 40 yrs of disappointment, poor drafting, worse trades and so on...
